The M-1905 Bayonet was adopted by the US military as a knife bayonet for the Model 1903 Rifle after it was determined necessary for the “modern” trench warfare of the early 1900s. Once the bayonet was officially adopted, production began at both the Springfield Armory and the Rock Island Arsenal (RIA). The Rock Island Arsenal produced just under 1/2 million total bayonets and this low run means originals are scarce today.
This is a replica of an original issue 1906, the first year of production for RIA. The early bayonets had bright blades and blued hilts and were marked on the ricasso “RIA 1906”, faithfully shown on this replica. The M-1905 Bayonet is the core of many bayonet collections and are highly sought after, but they are extremely scarce today. Replicated using an original for authenticity and employing the same materials, this is a collector-grade reproduction. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp. Can be personalized with 3 initials.
